WOMEN have been left horrified by a controversial rule book which claims to lay out “30 ways to keep your husband”.
Among the many eyebrow-raising tips was “never to raise your voice at your husband” and “provide regular sex so he doesn’t stray”.
The 30 tips were shared on a shaming Facebook group after a user saw them being added to a wedding planning page.
The anonymous original author claimed that many points were backed up by passages found in the Bible.
The shocked social media user said many people had been happily tagging their partners on the guide without questioning the rather divisive advice.
